A double standard on terrorism?

Defining terrorism is obviously controversial, even within domestic politics. But China has been increasingly vocal about how they feel under attack by a double standard the West is applying to China’s actions in Xinjiang. Terrorism certainly has a malleable definition, but repressing all information, as well as populations, that seem contrary to the main story is perhaps not the most convincing way to prove hypocrisy from China’s critics.

One thought on “A double standard on terrorism?

  1. One man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighters. Xinjiang is an ethnic struggle, not a religious one. That said, CCP always keeps it’s definitions of anything to be open to their ‘own’ interpretation, such as ‘normal religion’ which is never defined but will be guided by the current party’s needs. Same with terrorists.
